to no state. attacking states, laying low state governments, depleting the taliban, defeating al qaeda -- iraq. it will not stop it because terrorism, like sustainability, like markets, are interdependent in their character. so what we have created in the beginning of the 21st century is a deep asymmetry between the challenges we face and the political response the political institutions we have to respond to that. every challenge is interdependent, global cross frontier, and the primary political actors that respond are bounded, frontiered, independent nation states. and in that asymmetry, you can see the dysfunction of the modern world. we watch, for example, starting four or five years in copen hagueen and going through mexico city and dubai and nations came together to renew the kyoto protocol already out of term of the date. at least to embrace that antiquated document and failing to do so. and going home and saying that is because our sovereignty says china said the u.s., says now canada, even leaders on keogh know doesn't permit us to monitor, to report to international body, doesn't pe
's consider working together on areas to change how the government does business and give more value to the taxpayer while we get spending under control. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. arrow, for five minutes. mr. barrow: mr. speaker, i rise today to urge my colleagues to join me in support of house joint resolution 33 which would reshape the way washington operates. because congress has failed to do its job to find the spending cuts we need to replace the sequester, folks all across this country, including folks in my district in georgia, will pay the price. unfortunately in washington there are rules that prevent members of congress from being penalized for not doing their jobs. the constitution doesn't protect the folks at home so why should it protect the pay of members of congress? the 27th amendment of the constitution was written to prevent members of congress from giving themselves pay increases, but lately it's been used as a shield to prevent a congressional pay cut. my proposal, house joint resolutio

of the choice that was made to put in combined sewer systems. narrator: in 1994, the government adopted a combined sewer overflow policy to reduce csos nationwide. cities with combined sewer overflows now face an enforcement action called a consent decree. under a consent decree, a city must reduce pollution levels significantly within a strict time frame or face heavy fines. in 1960, the combined sewer overflows were a perfectly legitimate way of dealing with sewers. woman: the mind set was that, what did it matter if we were sending our waste downstream? water was a good conveyance for pollution. man: sewer systems are installed to reduce public health problems. now what you're doing is transferring the problem, you're transferring it to downstream cities. in addition, cities and towns above pittsburgh were doing the same thing. and then they were affecting the water intakes of pittsburgh. 90% of this region gets its drinking water from those same rivers that we have overflows occurring. hecht: we have sewage overflow with as little as 1/10" inch of rain. and our average storm here is
that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and iv
representatives of the black community. the community had to govern in our own interest and we will take that honor make that happen. the idea was not just about standing up to the police. it never was from the beginning. the party was very much about creating stewardship and self governance and community self-governance. while the initial development of the party and the national threat was there the strategy of self-defense, a lot of what became really the center of a party practice in 69 and onward was free brac is for children and community programs about taking care the community. here you had the war on poverty and yet you had children starving here in the united states. the black panther party said we are going to feed the children in our community. this was the breakfast program and they had liberation -- i want to say a word about the party. the party was attacked by the federal government not only is an organization that's really the history and the political possibility of the party was attacked. if you look at the documents of j. edgar hoover thinking about the threat of the
's a vision of the country where the government is indifferent to the suffering of many while only paying attention to the demands of a few. then there is the other plan that is before us, the democratic plan. with a balanced set of priorities, a better vision for the future, found in the budget offered by house budget committee ranking member chris van hollen. it takes a balanced approach with targeted spending and new revenues. it would cut waste, add jobs and spur economic growth of the economy. it would reduce the deficit by an additional $1.8 trillion without jeopardizing the recovery or harming the middle class. it includes $1.2 trillion in new revenue obtained not by tax increases but by closing loopholes and eliminating wasteful spending that benefits the wealthiest americans and the largest corporations. it eliminates $4 billion in annual tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, an industry that is making profits. they don't need a tax break. in fact, they're making enormous profits. so, why does the ryan budget give them a government subsidy? the democratic plan invests in infras
the library had been run privately and the federal government had kept all of president nixon's papers in washington, one of the outcomes of watergate, and my job was to bring it together and have a federally funded and administered library in california with the papers. so we started this oral history project 30 years late. and after all, it's much better when you get people when they're just out of the administration. and another since talking years later the time to, and may be more candid. the really, really older gentleman of the entity for the library had been with richard nixon in the '60s. you just mentioned something about him pushing him out. without exception, the men who had been with them in the '50s, he pushed away when he got to the white house. and he brought close to him younger people. he enjoyed having of the people around, but younger people he could mold and shape. and a lot of the trouble that arose was that these younger people were willing to do what he wanted them to do. whereas the older people and the numbers we interviewed wanted, kept saying no, don't do th
got that one wrong as well saying it was a responsibility. that it's not the government that should be in your lives making sure there is shelter over your head, making sure you have food on the table, medicine to keep you well and health care essentially. she says this is the american dream that i believe in. that's what i've been trying to teach my kids and this test is going against it. >>brian: it was on facebook and now has become a huge story. an update on that fox news alert. a shooting in quantico, virginia, where a suspected shooter killed two marines and then killed himself. sherry ly joins us live with the details. when did this happen? >> this happened at 11:00 last night at the officer candidate school. we're told that the gunman and the two victims were all active-duty marines. it started at that officer candidate school. one person was shot dead. according to a base spokesman at quantico, the gunman headed to a barracks, barricaded himself inside. military police as well as law enforcement were called in. a special reaction team went into the barracks where they found
what the government vertical did. clearly, we had the sequester late in the quarter. that could have had impact on numbers. it's about 10% of revenue. we'll be looking for some color there. hardware revenue has been disappointing. i think seven our the eight last quarters. that certainly weighed on total revenue. we're projecting growth to get to positive levels in q1. we'll certainly want to get an update there. and the license revenue is a bit of a miss as well. so we'll be looking for more color on the government side. >> go ahead, jon. >> something i do want to mention on epps, it's technically a 1 cent miss, avenue cents when the street was looking for 66 in non-gaap. through there is a currency impact. oracle saying that constant currency, it would have been 66 cents. but, again, many analysts have factored some currency in to their 66 cent estimate. so i'm not sure how much of that matters. >> well, i think that's a good point, jon. but i guess what ai'm focused o is revenue. >> yeah, particularly new license and hardware. >> right. >> particularly new license and hardware. i
: meantime the house voted yesterday on a republican budget for next year that would shrink the government by another 4.6 trillion over the next decade. paul ryan says this is the only way to balance america's books. >> their plan this year, they can fire it and go to a new one next year. those plans compete against each other around drives down costs and increases quality. it is a bipartisan idea. we want to apply that idea to the rest of the medicare for the younger generation. what this shows you can make medicare solvent and sustainable. you can make sure you don't change it for current seniors and save it for the next generation with these kinds of reforms. bill: that plan is on the way to the white house. republican budget plan for 2014 calls for a balanced budget in 10 years and sharp cuts for safety net programs for the poor and other programs. >> sharp blow to the president's health care law three years after it was passed republican senator orrin hatch and democratic senator amy klobuchar leading the charge repealing a key medical device tax that helps bankroll the law. stuart va
, because people were looking back to nixon saying you can have a good government republic that once the government of the efficient. although under mix and it did grow. the the republican party is so different now because there is no room for nixon so there was much more interesting richard nixon's domestic agenda. everybody is interested obviously in the foreign policy side like the end of the war in vietnam. but i noticed this in the second term of the bush administration there was more interest in the domestic policy. it is a real problem for historians because of the tapes richard nixon is not always very happy about his domestic policy. i was wondering since we are looking at the earlier period for next-gen, where would you put him in the new deal in the 1950's? would you say he is interested in a continuation of the new deal? what role does he see the government playing in the society? >> certainly think he had no desire to undo the new deal. she was very much aware and in favor of a catastrophic health plan. don't forget when nixon was growing up his family was poor, but he h

to defend an existing discriminatory regime which means it is really a government paying to defend these discriminatory laws. it is e minority groups seeking to challenge it, even though on paper it may look like they are raising a lot of money. in their own cases, it is their own money and it is not tax deductible. sylvester both mcmonkey mcbean anthe star- part of aeetches are privileged class. the analogy in the case of mass incarceration, the privileged class of folks who are not as worried at about being incarcerated. middle toe iddle to -- upper class, wealthy, white, you're not as worried about being stopped, frist, incarcerated but there are groups that benefit even more among the privileged class. i think about the corporate contract that provides prisons with all the have. everybody from victoria's secret to dell computers havhad private contract in prison that benefit from the prison complex. there is a certain group within the privileged class that benefit financially. in many00 cases to keep one person incarcerated. we all live in a state of fear so we opted that cost
in north richmond and bringing their own weapons and saying we're going to create our own governance. so this puts the whole party on a different scale. pause now this is seen as a -- because now this is seen as a threat. what happens is the state says, okay, we can't have that, we're going to change the gun laws and restrict the right to bear arms. and interestingly, the nra in this period is in favor of restrictions on second amendment, and, um, ronald reagan and the assembly pushed true this legislation -- through this legislation to restrict the right to bear arms and make this initial strategy of policing the police that had built political power, um, the panthers had used to build political power impossible. but this really, this puts the party on the map. chairman seale and a delegation of panthers go to the assembly and protest this legislation. they go armed. this is before the law is passed. and newspapers all over the country, all over the world all of a sudden know about the black panther party. this is huey newton and the wicker throne. i'm not going to have time to talk in
